I’ve heard bits and pieces of Yuck’s happy codeine rock before. A touch of Dinosaur Jr, a pinch of over-amp’d twee, some Sonic Youthfulness, some Smithsisms. Two of Yuck’s members used to be in Cajun Dance Party, a band I rather liked which gives me some hope. While these youngsters aren’t clockin’ anything completely original I am definitely sensing a “there-there.” They’re playing at CMJ this year and chances are my music blogger colleagues will be peeing all over each other about how amazing they are. It doesn’t hurt that the just one year old band were signed by Fat Possum. Yuck will also be rocking Philly on October 22 at Pi Lam with The Pains of Being At Heart and a couple of our favorite local bands including Creepoid and The Homophones. Below, a couple of songs from Yuck.
